Amitava Nandy (12 March 1943 – 15 August 2014) was a member of the 14th Lok Sabha of India. He represented the Dum Dum constituency of West Bengal and was a member of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M)) political party. He had been one of the most successful MPs during his tenure. The most significant work Nandy had done for his constituency was facilitating the withheld project of the expansion of the Metro Railways between Dum Dum and Dakshineswar. Mr. Nandy lost to Prof. Saugata Roy of TMC in elections to the 15th Lok Sabha .

Nandy used to take initiatives in commemorating the 'Amar Ekushe February'(the Immortal 21 February) every year. This is, indeed, a significant endeavour to promote the cultural oneness between the two'Bengals'-once partitioned as a result of a political conspiracy. Amitava was an educated, intellectual and a valuable asset to the CPI(M). He died of cancer in 2014.[1] His wife Ila Nandy is a councillor of Bidhannagar Municipality.
